1. Intentions of the Philosophers (כוונת הפילוסופים) by Abu Hamid Muhammad Al-Ghazali (fols. 1-95) in an
anonymous translation: begins אמר אבוחמד השבח לאל אשר שמריו השעות והודיענו (Steinschneider 1895:309).
It ends with a colophon copied from the text of our exemplar: נשלמו אלה הכונות על ידי הצעיר אליהו אמרילייו
בכ"ג יום לחדש טבת שנת חמשת אלפי' ומאתי’ ושלשי’ ותשעה ליצירה ... בשקביא ואני הצעיר העתקתי אלה הכונות מספר
הנ"ל. The original copy of Amarillio's Intentions of the Philosophers is found in Oxford, Bodl. lib.
Opp. 587 (colophon on fol. 76v), which is apparently the text exemplar of BSB Cod.hebr. 64.
2. Middle Commentary on Aristotle's Organon I-III (באור אמצעי על ספר ההגיון) by Averroes (fols. 95-153v),
translated by Jacob Anatoli: begins קול חופשי בינה בכסף (Steinschneider 1893:58-62).
3. Mikhlol Yoffi (מכלל יופי; The Compound of Beauty), parts 1-5 (chapter 10) by Samuel Zarza
(fols. 155-491v): begins ספר מכלל יופי שחבר החכם הפילוסוף ר' שמואל המכונה בן סינא שור מציון מכלול יופי מהרריך
(Schwartz 1989:25).

Fol. 95 by Yishai ben Yehiel, who also copied the colophon of his exemplar:
נשלמו אלה הכונות על ידי הצעיר אליהו אמרליין בכ"ג יום/ יום לחדש טבת שנת חמשת אלפים מאתי' ושליש' ותשע ליצירה למניננו/ בשקפיא/ ואני הצעיר העתקתי אלה הכונות מספר הנ"ל והשלמתו היו' יום/ א' כז' לחדש סיון שנת שי"ב ליצירה נאם ישי בכמ"ר יחיאל ז"ל
(These Intentions [of the Philosophers] were completed by Elia Amarillo the young (humble scribe) on 23rd Tevet 5239 from the Creation [1479], in Segovia. And I, the young (humble copyist), copied these Intentions from that book and completed it on Sunday, 27th Sivan 5312 from the Creation [19.06.1552], says Yishai son of Yehiel of blessed memory.)
Fol. 150v by Yishai ben Yehiel:
תם ונשלם ביאור הענינים אשר כללם זה הספר לאבן רשד/ והתהלה לאל בשלושים ושנים למספר בני ישראל/ ושלש מאות ושנים עשר לפרט לאלף הששי
(Completed are the matters included in this book by Averroes, praise be to God, in (Deut. Chapter) 32 ‘according to the number of the children of Israel’ (Deut. 32:8), in 5312 [1552].)
31 Scribal Notes

35 Binding

Green leather, turned brown, on wooden boards (335 x221 mm); gold-tooled with a central roundel on the front cover enclosing an inscription: פירושים. Below are the letters: FFFFF. On the back cover the roundel encloses a shield. Both roundels are each within an undulating lozenge in a large rectangle, decorated with floral motifs at the centre of each side and at the corners. At the bottom of the back lozenge are the letters IIIII. The spine, blind-tooled with hatching, has three hidden cords and head and tail bands. On the edges of the back cover are vestiges of four groups of three plaited leather bands, two groups on the side edge and one each on the upper and lower edges, with corresponding holes for four nails on the edges of the front cover (for preserved bands see Cod.hebr. 301). Each group of three bands terminated in a ring intended to hook over the nails of the opposite cover. The leaves are gilt-edged.

 

This binding was made for Fugger by Anton Ludwig inVenice(Hobson 1999: 129). Similar bindings in BSB: e.g. Cod.hebr. 20, 28, 43, 46, 49, 68, 73, Cod.gr. 78.
